DHIS2 Specialist

We’re looking for a DHIS2 specialist or someone ready to become one. Most of our projects include a DHIS2 instance running either in house or by the customer.

You’ll join various project squads with both business and development profiles working together to provide value to our users.

You’ll take part to the project analysis and requirement collection.

Your main role will be about project implementation in DHIS2 with specific tasks such as:

  • Configure users and groups
  • Import or manage pyramid
  • Create forms, whether tracker or aggregate based (data sets) with proper rules and validation
  • Create dashboards

Once a project is set, you’ll train the users on the platform. This may require to travel as most trainings are given on site.

Although this is not a developer job, good understanding of data problems is important.

Position:

You’ll join a team of six people working from several different countries. You will report to the CTO, but will work with various parts of the company – business development, product and the development team.

What we look for:

Experience with large/complex DHIS2 systems is ideal, bonus if this include some tracker programs.

Experience with data warehouses architecture and problems would be much appreciated

Experience and with complex excel sheets (multi level formulas, etc) and generally reporting tools (Business Object or others) is mandatory.

Hint: if you are not experienced in DHIS2 but think you could learn, we encourage you to do your homework – the available documentation & webinars are pretty good and freely available.

Recruitment process:

This is not written in stone, but we roughly follow this process:

    • Martin, our CTO make a first contact, typically a short call to expand a bit on the offer and answer any immediate question. He’ll also ask for any input the team could get
    • The second and main step is a group interview (in person and/or with a conf call) with people from the team you’ll join with. Our reasoning is that they would be your closest colleagues so we want to see if this would work.  This is generally more a conversation with some emphasis on your background and what you could bring to the team
  • Once this is done, we collect the feedback on our side (this is generally done the day after). At that time, if both you and the team are positive, we extend you an offer.

If your status allows for it, we’re also happy to give you a short assignment on a real case and make you work on it (we’re paying, of course).

Location

Our HQ is in Brussels but we are open to remote work. Operating on a similar schedule is mandatory (so Europe and Africa are possible).
